Default Pulling VF43 from storage

I've had a spare low mileage VF43 sitting in my garage for a couple years. I've put the turbo up for sale, but wanted to make sure there wouldn't be any issues for the buyer as the turbo has sat in storage for a couple years. Any thoughts?

could be perfect or could be horrible, nobody could possibly guess
How was it stored? On a floor in the corner fully exposed or in a thick plastic bag sprayed down with tons of oil and sealed?

Stored in a plastic bag tied shut inside of a cardboard. There's still wet oil throughout. I feel like all is fine, but figured I'd ask the question.

If there's wet oil still on it, you're most likely fine. Just check if there's no shaft play and give it a small spin to make sure it's not scraping against the housing. If shaft play is none-minimal then you are good to sell it, if it has plenty of shaft play then i'd recommend stating that in the ad.

^^No shaft play at all and smooth spin (plus no wastegate crack). It was in really great condition when I bought it (~20k miles). I just wasn't sure there might be something I wasn't thinking of after sitting for awhile.

Agreed, since it was sealed, no animals, bugs, dust, dirt, etc., so if it was good before you should be fine now.
